Narrm / Melbourne: Vandalism Sabotage of Estate Agent (Au$tralia)

May 10th, 2020

Real Estate Agent Evicts Traitorous Competitor (naarm/melbourne – so-called australia)

Late on the night of 4th May 2020, we Barry Plant Preston, evicted our rival real estate agents Jellis Craig Brunswick from their tenant-loving premises.

We smashed all their windows as retribution for their weak and sympathetic approach to the disgusting and dirty renters of Melbourne.

Evicting tenants and threatening them with crippling debt, is as far as Jellis Craig has gone, and we say that this is not enough!!

Only when every miserable renter is living in the streets and we are spitting in their filthy beggars cups, will we be happy.

We have taken this direct action to remind all real estate agents to not go easy on these shelter-slaves who are opportunistically taking advantage of the so-called corona virus, which we at Barry Plant Preston prefer to refer to as the free loaders disease.

Towards a world of greater authoritarianism, slavery and exploitation,

Barry Plant Preston

Greece: Worldwide Call For Solidarity to R.O-Revolutionary Struggle

May 9th, 2020

May 2020

Whenever the oppressed masses attempted the inversion of an injustice social, economical, political system, the resource to the arms and revolutionary violence has been the cornerstone of each revolutionary undertaking. It is a fact that no revolutionary process can’t reject violence as a form of struggling against the oppressors. Anarchists throughout the ages never divided the forms of struggling. For that reason Anarchism as a revolutionary movement has an unbroken and fundamental relationship with armed struggle because armed struggle springs from the roots of the lower social status and proletariat, acts for its interests, emerges as a pattern of construction with a revolutionary prospect. A revolutionary movement which respects itself, cannot exist without having a parallel path and an organic connection with the armed struggle. So we stand in solidarity with the comrades, men and women, who choose to fight also with armed struggle as urban guerillas having the analysis and strategy with main aim the creation of a society of economical equality and political freedom. We respect and support their choice especially when our comrades are still fighting for the cause of Social Revolution even in the most difficult circumstances.Two of those comrades are Pola Roupa and Nikos Maziotis , members of the Revolutionary Organization “Revolutionary Struggle”.

The comrades are imprisoned with life sentence and 27 years for Pola and 83 years (after breaking the life sentence in the 4th trial against “Revolutionary Struggle”) but they unremorsefully continue their fight in the court rooms and prisons of the Greek regime. The Revolutionary Organization “Revolutionary Struggle” was constituted in 2003 when the social and political environment in Greece was characterized by the absence of social and class resistances toward the neoliberal reforms. With the diffuse consent of the biggest part of the society, the system seemed steadfast. At this first period of action (2003 – 2007), “Revolutionary Struggle” had two main peaks of action against the imported neoliberal reforms on the political and social sphere and the “War on Terror” that had been declared by the USA and the rest of the political and economical elite of the West. Through the analyses, the strategy and the symbolically definitive high-impact blows, “Revolutionary Struggle” was directed to reveal the double nature of globalisation – political and martial- and disputed the state’s omnipotence.

Guerrilla Anarchism and Its Support Base

May 9th, 2020

Guerrilla anarchism is not a populist ideology and practice-it will never be a popular one either.

Guerrilla anarchism is built on, sustained by and shielded by networks of support, not organic communities within capitalism. It will always be a minoritarian tendency, even within anarchist thought, nevermind within capitalist society.

Despite this, it plays an indispensable role in the formation and maintenance of the anarchist movement and the insurrectionary process of revolution. It forms the defence groups of the anarchist movement, its funding sources, a key propaganda tool and the forces of attack.

Its support base is both rural and urban, based out of sympathetic individuals who provide finance, transport and shelter.

Organic communities in capitalism, whether they be the local area, the workplace community, etc., will often view the anarchist guerrilla in hostile terms, and often act against the guerrilla in a negative fashion. This is the reality of the anarchist guerrilla.

That is until the mass insurrectionary process, when the community engages in a social insurrection alongside the guerrilla. Only then does the strength and necessity of the guerrilla become apparent–as the sharp edge of the social insurrection.

The guerrilla insurrectionary process

A historical example, such as the 1969 insurrection in the north of Ireland is a prime example of the minoritarian role played by the armed insurrectionist in the wider insurrection.

For most of the build up to the 1969 insurrection, the republican guerrillas were tiny groups of isolated insurrectionists, based out of support networks rather than wider community support. Only when the insurrection breaks out on a mass scale does the the community come to the guerrilla. Read the rest of this entry »

[Prisiones chilenas] Movilización en la Cárcel de Alta Seguridad ante el contexto de la pandemia

May 9th, 2020

COMUNICADO PÚBLICO:

En la cárcel de alta seguridad, en el sector del 2 y 3 H Norte se mantiene una movilización de huelga hambrienta desde hace quince días. Esto es exigirle todas las raciones de alimento que corresponden a gendarmería ya que habitualmente en la normalidad carcelaria faltan (además la idea es hacer trabajar al carcelero porque los mozos que reparten el rancho a modo de protesta tampoco lo harán).
Esta modalidad se ha usado por décadas en las prisiones y muchas veces se confunde con la huelga de hambre.

Además, todas las noches a las 22:00hrs se realiza un golpeteo generalizado de barrotes y puertas como parte de la protesta.

Esta movilización se enmarca en el contexto de prevención de la pandemia y como necesario momento para expresar nuestras reivindicaciones que son:

1.– Cambio de medidas cautelares para las y los imputados que se encuentran en prisión preventiva, haciendo prevalecer el principio de presunción de inocencia que se supone prima en lo jurídico.

2.– Que se aceleren y otorguen los beneficios intrapenitenciarios para todas y todos los que cumplen con los requisitos base. Sin anteponer otras exigencias que aparecen como trabas.

3.– Que se derogue el artículo de la Ley 321 (que regula libertades condicionales) para que esta se aplique como corresponde, es decir, desde su promulgación y no de forma retroactiva.

4.– Que se busquen fórmulas de libertad adicionales que contemplen casos de personas con discapacidad, enfermedades crónicas, conductas intachables, porcentaje de cumplimiento de la pena, adquisición de oficio, etc. Más allá de las contempladas en una postulación normal.

Somos 25 prisioneros en esta movilización que hacemos el llamado a romper el aislamiento y la insolidaridad para manifestarse del modo que sea posible y necesario según donde y como se encuentren en este contexto de pandemia y control social.

HASTA DESTRUIR TODAS LAS PRISIONES!!

Módulos 2 y 3 H Norte de la cárcel de alta seguridad.
Santiago de Chile.

Nota: Este comunicado lo recibimos y difundimos el día 5 de mayo de 2020. Destacamos que en esta movilización que se realiza en la Cárcel de Alta Seguridad está participando el compañero subversivo Marcelo Villarroel Sepúlveda, quien se encuentra en el módulo 3 H Norte condenado por atracos bancarios (el más recordado en el que murió el paco Moyano en el año 2007) además arrastra otras condenas bajo la justicia militar por acciones cuando perteneció a la guerrilla urbana del Mapu-Lautaro, aquí dejamos un comunicado con la información respectiva: https://es-contrainfo.espiv.net/2018/08/23/santiago-chile-2o-comunicado-publico-de-la-red-solidaria-antikarcelaria-con-juan-y-marcelo/

To Be Released

May 9th, 2020

Weeks after our initial incarceration we are finally being released, little by little. Released, we say, because very few stayed indoors of their own accord. Of course some did, but most had no choice. Media hysteria censured of any alternative, fines, police intimidation and beatings are enough to keep even the most rebellious souls locked up. The monster came out of the mist only to retreat again, no one knowing when it might return to rear its ugly head.

Yet, here in southern Europe, we were not abandoned during quarantine. Not forgotten like the dead. Carrefour kept its shelves stocked. If one persisted toilet paper could be found and hoarded. Amazon never let us down, but at $10,000 a second that’s hardly surprising. Orange supplied in times of need, but with society’s upsurge in demand on telecommunications an upgrade from this archaic 4G is essential. In a period of hibernation, as they have chosen to label it, big industry enjoyed a midnight feast while the others were forced to sleep. It would appear that Holzmann’s ‘creative destruction’ is exactly what we’re witnessing: a good old deep clean, forcing the clutter into the corners to make space for the elegant new furniture.

The scientific bombardment shows little sign of slowing up. The facts, figures, graphs, lofty titles and even heftier wallets continue to force upon us a story that must be accepted. Our ideas, experiences and lives are nothing but fake news in a New Normality where the only trustworthy sources are the party-pledges of our favorite periodicals. Everyone’s got an opinion yet to refuse the transcribed plot is to be in support of murder. Numbers skyrocketed, then relaxed, but death continues to rain down, yet all we see on the bleak walk to the shop and back are the faces we once smiled at, averting our gaze.

The life we are now living was drawn from a model that transitioned us from fascism, says the cop, gun pressed gently into the lower back. We’re lucky to have had this time together, says the husband, brushing his wife’s hair across the bruise beneath her eye. Many countries won’t have had the privileges granted to us, announces the director of an NGO, looking out of his window over the Madrid skyline. Read the rest of this entry »

Indonesia: Call for International Solidarity to End our Comrades Isolation

May 5th, 2020

Calling for anarchists global solidarity action

“STOP THE ISOLATION OF OUR COMRADES IN TANGERANG, RELEASED OUR COMRADES IN MALANG, FREE ALL THE ANARCHISTS!”

Introduction

While we know that the state will act in a totalitarian manner in this times and as being an anarchists we don’t value their values, but in our constant struggle against the prevailing capitalist ideology that continues to colonialised our daily lives, the purpose of ABC are to help them in legal matters in which they get the “rights” for them and to communicate with them, to make them not isolated and feeling lonely.

Every decision are theirs we value that, but when the state are trying to orchestrate a bullshit narratives into scapegoating the anarchists or the anarchist movement in general in Indonesia in order to veil their own incompetency in dealing with the crisis and pandemic, we asked you, not for money or anything involving that, but to show your solidarity in whatever means. It can be graffiti, banner dropping, or most importantly to acknowledge every Indonesian consulate about the isolation and the arbitrary action that the police are doing to them. Please read the following articles (two of the were written by the Individualist Sect) and some of them are from mainstream media.

Mainstream media:

(On these reports or in any other reports Indonesian police only knew one tendency, that is anarcho syndicalism, which are false and poor research because the anarchist movement in Indonesia are very diverse and there’s only one small group inactive anarcho-syndicalist and not a union)

https://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2020/04/14/books-seized-five-arrestedas-police-claimanarcho-syndicalists-plan-mass-looting-in-java.html

https://www.straitstimes.com/asia/se-asia/coronavirus-police-arrest-five-indonesians-attempting-to-instigate-looting

(These are the earliest reports from the Individualist Sect concerning the arrests and media sensationalisation)

Chronology of Tangerang Anarchists Isolation

On April 9, 2020, R, Af, and Ri were arrested in a tavern in Tangerang on vandalism charges. Apart from the minor crimes they committed, the police showed an arrest warrant that did not have their names listed. The family was also notified of this arrest on April 11, 2020, 2 days after the arrest. In fact, Af is a minor. The legal process is not in accordance with procedures and until now all three are still blocked by the police to get legal assistance. •

The right to receive legal representation is stipulated in articles 69, 70, 72, Law no. 8 of 1981 concerning Criminal Procedure Law. • “The tendency to obstruct access to legal representation is a violation of the right to a fair trial as contained in Article 14 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (Ratified in Law No. 12 of 2005)” •

Immediately Fulfill Their Rights To Get A Legal Assistant!

Black Cross – WA www.palanghitamanarkis.noblogs.org

Ps: Three more arrested and are still behind bars in East Java, Malang. They are prosecuted with the same charges “public provocation” under 160 Law such those comrades in Tangerang.

Ps: There’s already small gestures of solidarity from Netherlands and Australia. Links below:

International Day of Solidarity with All Long-Term Anarchist Prisoners – 2020 Call

May 5th, 2020

June 11th: International Day of Solidarity with Marius Mason and All Long-Term Anarchist Prisoners. In the 16 years this tradition has been observed, June 11th has facilitated support and action inspired by imprisoned anarchists — from noise demonstrations outside of jails to letter-writing nights, from fundraisers to arson. Setting aside this day is one way of remembering anarchists who are serving long prison sentences, generating support for them, and inspiring solidarity actions.

Because social struggles phase in and out, this day is a way to make sure that our imprisoned comrades are not forgotten. June 11th is a way of combating amnesia, of trying to sustain a long-term memory in the anarchist space. June 11th is a day against oblivion.

The context of June 11th this year is one in which our lives have been wrenched out of normality. A scary time, but also a time for innovation. And an especially important time to remember and support our imprisoned loved ones. While calls to release people from jails, prisons, and ICE detention facilities during the pandemic are growing louder and having some success, it’s likely that many of our comrades’ names will not be on the list for early release. Whether it’s due to marginalized identities, terrorism enhancements, a history of standing up to guards and prison administration, or just being an outspoken anarchist, this means that their long sentences and already abhorrent health care and mistreatment could carry even worse consequences.

Our new daily lives and our responses to the pandemic can carry with them the memory and support for imprisoned anarchists. Where we are working fewer hours, we can write more letters. Where our kids are now learning from home, we can include prisoners’ names in lessons about courage and about state repression. Where we give ourselves over to mutual aid projects, we can take inspiration from our comrades and invoke their contributions and memories

In the last year, Connor Stevens of the Cleveland 4, all remaining members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire urban guerrilla group in Greece, and Tamara Sol in Chile have been released from prison.

Eric King is still in segregation and now faces a 20 year charge related to self-defense actions he took in 2018. His support team has started a legal defense fund. He is scheduled to go to trial in the summer of 2020.

Anna Beniamino co-initiated a hunger strike against especially-repressive prison conditions in May 2019. Alfredo Cospito and other imprisoned anarchists in Italy later joined this hunger strike. Alfredo reported experiencing health problems related to the strike.

Michael Kimble was put in solitary after defending a prisoner from being beaten by guards. In February he and his support team launched a fundraising campaign for a lawyer to overturn his conviction. Jeremy Hammond was called in October to testify in the same grand jury that re-imprisoned Chelsea Manning. Both refused to testify. In March, Jeremy was released from contempt as the grand jury concluded and was returned to the federal prison system, though he is currently being held in the Grady County Jail in Oklahoma.

Marius Mason continues to serve his 22 year sentence, currently at Danbury CT. He is petitioning for compassionate release for health reasons during Covid-19. His support site is currently down, but people can donate through PayPal and Venmo and updates will be coming on Twitter and FB until the website is back up.

Lisa of the Aachen bank robbery case was recently restricted by a prison magistrate from being able to leave prison on weekends and during the day.

As members of the struggles of the ’60s and ’70s complete their sentences, and younger partisans of recent struggles emerge from shorter stints in prison, we can connect with them in mutually-enriching relationships. The challenges of being released from prison can be mitigated by a strong community of support; communities of support can deepen their own understanding of prison by direct interaction with former prisoners. These relationships can strengthen each of their participants, and expand beyond in the form of new projects and initiatives to free those still held captive.

One important and often neglected aspect of prisoner support is aid to the families of the imprisoned. Family members – often constituting a prisoner’s primary or only base of support – bear the emotional, financial, and mental hardships of their loved ones behind bars. The exorbitant costs of commissary, phone calls, and visits put undue strain on those who, in most cases, are already struggling to make ends meet. Social atomization, which leaves most of us feeling lost, can be hell for those whose close companions have been stolen by the state, and who lack communities of support. These struggles continue after prisoners are released, with friends and family trying to find them employment, places to live, help with parole or other forms of diffuse detention, etc. Project FANG provides travel funds to the families and friends of animal and earth liberation prisoners, allowing them to visit their imprisoned loved ones. The Rosenberg Fund for Children provides aid to the children of activists targeting by the state. Aside from supporting these projects, we encourage anarchists to form relationships with the families of anarchist prisoners: some may not share our ideas (though many do!), but they do share our desire to see loved ones in prison survive and thrive.

As the world descends further into crisis, we are less and less able to evade questions about how we live, what sorts of relationships we create together, and what worlds we wish to inhabit. On the one hand, there is ever-increasing state power, the slavery of the individual to the technological system, and the anomic loneliness of modern life. On the other, there are complex and difficult possibilities of decentralized lifeways in which individual freedom and shared joys mix in an alchemy which affirms both. Our bonds, tempered over years of living and fighting together, can prove the starting point for these new forms of existence. Those behind bars – who we have kept present with us in our garden plots and forest wanderings, in the melodies of our songs and in the adrenaline rush of our night work – are a part of the new world we hope for. Let’s not forget them for one moment.

We encourage translation and dissemination of this call. Please email translations to june11th (at) riseup (dot) net.

Chicago, IL: Heartland Alliance Prison Vans Attacked, Tires Slashed (U$A)

May 5th, 2020

“As for me, I have chosen: I will be on the side of crime. And I will help the children, not to win back access to your houses, your factories, your schools, your
laws and sacraments, but to destroy them.”
Jean Genet

As the realities of school and rent vanish at our backs we find ourselves unleashed into a world of urgency and play. The ubiquity of masks transforms even delayed grocery trips into hunting expeditions guided by howls of distress.

It is not naive to claim that we are the one’s we have been waiting for and emerge from quarantine to lay siege to the colony. Surviving Covid-19 and attacking at the heart of the plague-making machine calls for lots of affinity groups, shared risk thresholds and games to sharpen our claws. It is not enough to someday ‘burn a prison to the ground’ when new forms of captivity are being engineered to rise from it’s ashes as we speak, disguised as clinics, hospitals, shelters…

So just like that, we descended on Heartland Alliance’s driveway, slashed six tires, and disabled three vehicles.

Philadelphia: Anarchist Group ‘Bristling Badger Brigade’ Burns Cell Tower (U$A)

May 4th, 2020

Another May Day, another cell tower set alight. A small act in the earliest hours, but an escalation beyond the norm. And we never want to return to ‘normalcy.’ We don’t know the difference between 4G and 5G. All we know is we want none of it.

The tower’s proximity to a train yard, a major pharmaceutical company’s office, and other military/mercenary enterprises in the Philadelphia Navy Yard was intended to interfere with their operations, however small the impact. It should also be a reminder that no one is untouchable if you have the appropriate determination. And this particular act was quite easy.

The first flame was a warm hug for the comrade Badger, allegedly on the run after a series of similar incidents in Bristol. Stay free!

The ensuing smoke a signal to the comrades undergoing the Scripta Manent persecution in Italy… we stand with you!

For freedom,
for anarchy!

Incendiary attack against Amazon in Los Angeles County (U$A)

May 4th, 2020

For autonomous, decentralized May Day, we torched an Amazon van in Los Angeles County.

We could not sit idly by and watch the spread of COVID-19 turn ICE detention centers into full blown death camps

Amazon provides the cloud servers that hosts the Investigative Case Management system, the database utilized by ICE and other Federal agencies to compile public and private data to track and deport immigrants. Amazon plays a role in every raid; every family separation; and every death at the hands of ICE. It was the goal of this action to raise the stakes for companies like Amazon that provide critical border enforcement infrastructure.

In solidarity with with migrants currently on hunger strike in ICE facilities throughout the country. In solidarity with warehouse and grocery workers engaging in wildcat strikes on May Day.

Against the imposition of borders and the proliferation of the surveillance state

Texas “control unit” prison: New writings and update from Xinachtli (U$A)

May 1st, 2020

“I will not equivocate — I will not excuse — I will not retreat a single inch — AND I WILL BE HEARD. The apathy of the people is enough to make every statue leap from its pedestal, and to hasten the resurrection of the dead.”

Fraternal, revolutionary greetings, in the true spirit of internationalism and solidarity against all forces of evil, destruction and self-destruction, hoping this one finds you, family and friends in the very best, as it leaves me, during these trying times of not only the deadly Coronavirus COVID-19, but of the same deadly white supremacist pig-germ that now occupies the White House, that is as deadly as COVID-19 for our impoverished communities, and for the imprisoned, and poor immigrants seeking a better way of life, all pushed back by this sheer imperialist arrogance and elitism of the billionaire, money-laundering pig club that has taken over the halls of political power in the U.S. of A., a clear and present danger to all of humanity and planet Earth. Let future generations disown us and label us as spineless cowards, if we do not act to stop this insanity and madness!

You have the free liberty to duplicate these materials and share them with the rest of the world, on social media or to whomever or wherever you find my words, in the hopes that this extreme state repression I am being subjected to by these racist police state pigs may stir the senses of world humanism, and motivate others to join the freedom train, in whichever ways they can, in spreading the word of the true realities of what Amerikkka’s racist, pig prison torture chambers are all about, all in the name of the corporate greed profiteering of those who make a livelihood of imprisoning others and upholding the fascism of this capitalist/imperialist totalitarian police state. There is only one way out of this misery for us, and that is through class struggle and social revolution. I have my shovel in hand, and have joined the club of grave diggers, to dig the future grave of this racist, oppressive and criminal system of robbery called capitalism. Expropriate the expropriators! Read the rest of this entry »

Estado Español: No somos héroes. Somos explotados. Somo explotadas.

May 1st, 2020

PDF

No somos héroes. Somos explotados. Somo explotadas.

Recopilación de paros, huelgas y conflictos varios en los centros de
trabajo bajo estado de alarma.

Por la extensión del conflicto. Por la solidaridad y la acción directa.

El trabajo no ha parado a pesar de la pandemia del coronavirus. Desde el
comienzo del confinamiento los trabajadores y trabajadoras de todo el
mundo hemos sido y seguimos siendo golpeados duramente por las
decisiones que empresas y gobiernos toman sobre nuestras vidas. Sea
porque tenemos que acudir a nuestros puestos de trabajo por ser
considerados esenciales, sea porque trabajos que no lo son mantengan su
actividad, sea porque hayamos sido despedidos y despedidas o porque un
ERTE sea la solución de muchas empresas, sea como sea, somos quienes
sufrimos una de las tantas consecuencias agravadas por la pandemia: la
dominación del trabajo asalariado. Dominación que ya sufríamos antes de
la aparición del coronavirus por la mayor pandemia, el capitalismo.

Seguimos produciendo bajo unas condiciones míseras de seguridad, con
mascarillas que no protegen apenas, si es que las dan y no las tiene que
llevar el trabajador, sin guardar la distancia de seguridad recomendada,
mientras seguimos sufriendo accidentes o muertes en el trabajo. Nos
jugamos la salud y la vida. Pero ante esta situación cientos de
trabajadores tanto en el Estado español como en otros países del mundo
se han levantado contra los explotadores en momentos puntuales de la
pandemia. Aquí se recogen algunos casos en los que los trabajadores y
trabajadoras han exigido mejoras en sus puestos de trabajo, han parado
la producción en sus empresas o declaran jornadas de huelga para
enfrentar la miseria a la que nos condena el Estado y el capital.

Italy: Updates about the Scripta Manent trial / Italia: Aggiornamenti sul processo Scripta Manent

Italy: Updates about the Scripta Manent trial

For the date of July 1, 2020, the first appeal hearing of “Scripta Manent” trial has been established at the bunker hall of “Le Vallette” prison in Turin. The dates set for the appeal hearings are as follows: 1, 8, 10, 15, 17, 22, 24, 29 July; 9, 11, 16 September.

In spite of the pandemic, the Court of Turin is among those that have guaranteed the holding of “important” trials, and with inmates, already scheduled for this summer. So presumably this date remains confirmed.

The comrades are accused of article 270 bis (subversive association with the purpose of terrorism or subversion of the democratic order) and for various anti-militarist actions, against the CPRs (Centri di permanenza per il rimpatrio, “Repatriation detention centres”, formerly known as CIEs, i.e. prisons for migrants), in solidarity with imprisoned anarchists, against barracks, headquarters and men of the institutions claimed by FAI and FAI/FRI (Federazione Anarchica Informale/Fronte Rivoluzionario Internazionale), from 2003 to date. The accused currently imprisoned will be in videoconference, as in all the last hearings of
the first degree.

In fact, during the period of the preliminary hearings, there was still no law requiring videoconferencing. Subsequently, at the beginning of the first degree, the law that provided for it was passed, which granted a year of time to prisons and courts to adapt, imposing, in that year, videoconferencing only on the defendants accused of being at the top of the “associations”. After one year, videoconferencing was applied to everyone as planned.

During the hearing on February 11, 2019, in the bunker hall of the Turin prison, a large group of comrades expressed their warm solidarity with the anarchists on trial. The prosecutor, Roberto Sparagna, was unable to take the floor to present his indictment. After several slogans and the reading of the text below, the Court interrupted the hearing. The courtroom was evicted through the intervention of the riot police.

Consistent with the strategy employed by the investigators to date, aimed at isolating the prisoners and undermining the support expressed to them, pursuing the various manifestations of closeness and solidarity, following the presence in the courtroom in February 2019 the Turin police headquarters issued about sixty “fogli di via” (prohibition to reside or to go to a specific municipality or area) from the city and seven accusations for interruption of public office and outrage.

It remains important to continue to show our solidarity with the defendants.

«Twenty years of the history of anarchism are being accused here. We are not accused, but this is our history and our revolutionary path. And it is precisely to this path that the practices on trial today belong.
We are all involved and the executioners of the State cannot define or understand our ideas and our lives.
Solidarity with anarchist and revolutionary prisoners!
Not a step backwards, Always Heads Up.
“Firmly and uncompromisingly towards our goal”.
For Anarchy!».

SOLIDARITY AND STRENGTH TO THE COMRADES PRISONERS OF SOCIAL WAR!
FREEDOM FOR ANNA, MARCO, ALFREDO, NICOLA AND SANDRO!


Italia: Aggiornamenti sul processo Scripta Manent

Per la data del 1° luglio è stata stabilita la prima udienza di appello del processo Scripta Manent presso l’aula bunker delle Vallette di Torino. Le date fissate per le udienze di appello sono queste: 1, 8, 10, 15, 17, 22, 24, 29 luglio; 9, 11, 16 settembre.

Nonostante la pandemia, il Tribunale di Torino è fra quelli che hanno garantito lo svolgersi di processi “importanti”, e con detenuti, già in calendario per questa estate. Quindi presumibilmente questa data rimane in effetti confermata.

I/le compagni/e imputati/e sono accusati di 270 bis e per varie azioni antimilitariste, contro i CPR, in solidarietà agli anarchici
prigionieri, contro caserme, sedi e uomini delle istituzioni a firma FAI e FAI/FRI, dal 2003 ad oggi. Gli imputati prigionieri saranno in videoconferenza, come in tutte le ultime udienze del primo grado.

Infatti durante il periodo delle udienze preliminari non c’era ancora nessuna legge che imponesse la videoconferenza. Poi, all’inizio del primo grado è passata la legge che però concedeva un anno di tempo a carceri e tribunali per adeguarsi, imponendo in quell’anno di adeguamento la videoconferenza solo agli imputati accusati di essere ai vertici delle “associazioni”. Passato l’arco di tempo di un anno, la videoconferenza è stata applicata a tutti/e come previsto.

All’udienza dell’11 febbraio 2019, sempre nell’aula bunker del carcere di Torino, un nutrito gruppo di compagni e compagne ha espresso la sua calorosa solidarietà agli anarchici/e sotto processo. Il PM Roberto Sparagna, è stato impossibilitato a prendere parola per formulare la sua requisitoria. Dopo diversi slogan e la lettura del testo sottostante, la Corte ha interrotto l’udienza. L’aula è stata sgomberata dall’intervento delle squadre antisommossa.

Coerentemente alla strategia impiegata dagli inquirenti fino ad ora, tesa a isolare i prigionieri e minare il sostegno espresso loro, perseguendo le varie manifestazioni di vicinanza e solidarietà, la questura di Torino in seguito alla presenza in aula di febbraio, ha emesso una sessantina di fogli di via dalla città, e sette denunce per interruzione di ufficio ed oltraggio in concorso.

Rimane importante continuare a dimostrare la nostra solidarietà agli/le imputati/e.

«Qui si stanno mettendo sotto accusa 20 anni di storia dell’anarchismo.
Non siamo imputati, ma questa è la nostra storia ed il nostro percorso rivoluzionario.
E proprio a questo percorso appartengono le pratiche oggi sotto processo.
Siamo tutti coinvolti e i boia dello stato non possono definire né comprendere le nostre idee e le nostre vite.
Solidarietà ai prigionieri anarchici e rivoluzionari!
Non un passo indietro, Sempre A Testa Alta.
“Fermamente e senza compromessi verso il nostro obiettivo”.
Per l’Anarchia!».


SOLIDARIETA’ E FORZA AI COMPAGNI PRIGIONIERI DELLA GUERRA SOCIALE!
LIBERTA’ PER ANNA, MARCO, ALFREDO, NICOLA E SANDRO!

Thessaloniki: Responsibility claim for incendiary attacks by Constantly Fluid Union (Greece)

May 1st, 2020

This is a translation of a Greek text claiming the responsibility for some incendiary attacks on two vehicles of the Hellenic Post and a vehicle of a security company at Thessaloniki, Greece. This action took place during the quarantine days, in the middle of April 2020, by the “Constantly Fluid Union”. The photos are taken from corporate media. Here is the original source-link with the Greek text.

We responsibly declare that we are irresponsible

We move around insubordinate

We will not leave the fight for later

So let’s play

The night falls on the metropolis.

The roles have been consolidated, as the quarantine conjuncture builds a new routine, having passed a big period of time.

A routine being controlled and which simultaneously controls us.

Citizens are enclosed inside their homes, they open their TVs for the evening program. The question is if they ever closed them all day. Some of them, recalling the glorious days of their “freedom”, take a battle position on their balcony; they are the initiative protectors, those checking who moves around and who doesn’t. They don’t just gaze, they feed their thirstiness for control and police inspection of their neighbourhoods. Snitches, responsible citizens, good house-keepers, supporters of the military junta, alpha males; they emit the disgusting smell wafting around the city, which is empty of people and full of cops.

And of course cops experience once again the protagonist role. Dispersed on the streets, wandering around as imposing figures, they dominate the neighbourhoods and proudly check the people. Sometimes they don’t even need to do this, because they get their pleasure by the anxious glances and steps of the passengers, even if they don’t stop some of them.

The imposed routine of confinement that we experience since more than one month, has generated unprecedented feelings to us. Things that since now were considered as dystopic (reports of moving around, control of the social field in militarized terms, cops in the streets, drones), now are just reality, and other things (such us protests, posterings, gatherings) are getting criminalized.

Our hatred for authority and the complex of power in which we survive isn’t paused. We need to invent new praxises, both to achieve the pre-quarantine obvious things, and to continue causing open wounds and cracks on the existent. We try, by being close to each other, to not get seized by fear, wherever it comes from. We find targets to attack, so as not to die by tedium or in front of a screen, and simultaneously to elicit clandestine complicit smiles to our comrades.

And when does all this finish?

Probably when it is defined by those who set the game of law.

When is it crumbled up?

When some people choose to have some flammable stuff on them during a purposeless walk.

A fire can disturb the rules, disturb those who set them, because apparently some individuals intend neither to obey nor to submit. And maybe this fire is the healing element that can be channelized through the streets of the ghost-town, and through the eyes of the gloomy and almost lifeless people composing it.

On Friday 10/04, we set fire to two vehicles of ELTA (Hellenic Post), at Papanastasiou street, opposite to Ippokratio hospital.

On Wednesday 15/04, we placed an incendiary device to a vehicle of a security company at Sikies area.

We send a signal of solidarity to all those who, even if they are incarcerated and directly afflicted by the state of exemption, though they continue to have a decent and combatant position.

Our incendiary greetings to all the migrants who revolt inside the detention centres, to all the prisoners inside the Greek hellholes, who experience revengeful transfers or repressive investigations in their cells by the scum of Greek Police.

With happiness and pleasure overflowing from our eyes, we declare that nothing will remain unanswered, we will come back armed with more rage, being more rabid and dangerous.

From Korinthos to Malandrino, Thebes, Domokos, and from Paranesti to Corfu, Koridalos, Chania and Grevena: FIRE AND FLAMES TO EVERY CELL / CAGE.

RAGE AND CONSCIOUSNESS, NEGATION AND VIOLENCE, LET’S SPREAD CHAOS AND ANARCHY

Constantly Fluid Union
